This is a great hike, from Great Falls on up. Rand's View is one of the most beautiful spots on the CT section of the AT!

Beautiful falls! Have to see! Trail well traveled up to top of Mt Prospect. Limited views but views nonetheless. Tried to extend my walk to Raccoon Hills but found the trail heading downward and my legs tired out and knew I had to go back down Mt Prospect to where I started.

Unquestionably one of the best views in CT. Park down by the Great Falls at Falls Village and take the Appalachian Trail up. Rand's view is roughly 3 miles from there. Little bit tough going up Prospect Mountain, but at the top there is a cool view of Canaan Mountain. Just go a little bit farther until you reach a meadow that just doesn't belong in the Connecticut Countryside. Highly recommend it for anyone!
